If you want to nail the trend, then you need to get those nails in shape. As the weather heats up, we all want to switch up our nail art, and while the classic white French manicure is still the standard choice, it’s time to explore some new trends.
The Ankara effect has been making its mark on fashion for several years now, and it’s now beginning to show up in the beauty industry as well. The trend involves long, straight nails painted in a vibrant shade of turquoise. While the nails don’t have to be particularly large, they can look good if you’re going for something on the larger side.
How to Get Started With Your Trendy Nail Art
If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed when it comes to choosing the perfect shade of polish to give your nails a modern spin, then take inspiration from the likes of Rihanna, who has recently gone full-on Ankara on her manicures.
To get started, grab a few bottles of your favorite polish colors and make sure you have plenty of clean cotton balls for easy removal of any excess polish.
1. Start by applying a base coat to your nails, using clear acrylic paint, and letting it dry.
2. Apply a thin coat of your chosen shade of color to your nails, and then let it dry completely.
3. Once dry, remove any excess paint with cotton balls.
4. Using a dotting tool, apply another coat of polish, making sure the color is even.
When it comes to Ankara fashion, we love to see new trends and how fashionistas use the Ankara print to create bold statements. Except for the Ankara nails trend, you haven’t seen or tried it all with Ankara.
Trending Ankara Chic Nails
If you’re wondering what the fabric and nails have in common, a quick look at these creative nail styles will help change your perspective.
The Ankara nail trend isn’t quite new; it’s been around for quite some time. To achieve the Ankara appearance before the recent breakthrough, nail artists had to laboriously paint Ankara pattern designs on nails. The trend upgrade, however, comes with a new method for attaining the Ankara nail impression. It’s known as the Ankara nail wrap, and it’s a fashion label. Ankara has a lot of it in everything.
You can manufacture your own Ankara nails if you are artistically inclined or in the mood for a fun DIY project. All you have to do is acquire some Ankara fabric of your choice, glue it on acrylic nails, cut and trim it to fit the acrylic, and then paint your nails with the new set. Sounds amazing right?
Now take a look at some cute appearances your Ankara nails can take.
